Is there something you have always fancied buying but just couldn't justify spending the money?

Asked by Bellatrix (21128 points ) August 18th, 2011

I have always fancied buying a pair of bright red stiletto heels. I just can’t justify spending the money though. I would probably wear them very rarely. I have just always wanted a pair.

Is there something you would like to buy, but it is a pure indulgence you just can’t justify?

A helicopter! I mean, i’m a wuss when it comes to flying, but a helicopter at least takes you up in a gentle fair ride sort of way. I could handle that pretty well, especially if I was “driving” the bloody thing. Alas, that shall remain a pipe dream…......for now.

One of these would be lovely.
I really don’t need one though.

I’ve got curly hair and I“ve always wanted to get that Japanese Hair Straigtening done, but it’s a small fortune and you have to get it re-straightened every so often and that’s really expensive too.. as much as I’d love to have permanently straight hair… I can’t justify spending the money for it.

Plastic surgery.

An aga. Can’t really justify it on the basis it’d probably be bigger than my current flat.

@ANef_is_Enuf. To what? The bit in the photo looks fine as it is! ;)

@Lightlyseared you don’t want to know what I’ve contemplated. Thanks. :)

Loads of things. I wish I could afford to buy more clothes as many of mine are old and tired but I can’t justify going on a decent clothes shop.

A siding brake. http://www.industrialladder.com/listSubCategories.do?categoryID=53&gclid=COKalrKN2aoCFRQU2godGAtK9w If you like to fold metal into perfectly straight shapes these are the cats ass. But it would never, ever, pay for itself….ever.

I’m playing around with the idea of buying a Rolex, more precisely the Cosmograph Daytona model. The only thing stopping me is a box of candy at work that was given to us by a charity, the side of the box reads “adopt a starving child for just 60 cents a day”.

Underwear.

@mazingerz88 I’d make that a priority
An iPhone. By the time I have enough for one a new one is always “about to come out” so I end up getting an android.

Right now I’d like to buy a big flat screen TV, but the TV I have now, which is almost 9 years old, still works perfectly fine. I can’t really justify buying new TV.

Oh, and a Bose Stereo. Someday.

I want a fancy massage chair. It’s like 4K, I’ll never afford it.

New face (yes, a complete do-over), liposuction and a lifting of everything from my boobs down to and including my stomach.

And an iPhone. I’m just to cheap to pay for a data plan.

Symbeline's avatar

I also want a more recent TV. Especially now that I have a PS3. But it’s too damn expensive. I thought of getting one this Summer, but I found myself too short on cash. Some day though.

Some plastic surgery and movie making equipment. The movie making equipment is to video others not myself!!

Bellatrix's avatar

Nods at @linguaphile .. of course… (home movies ahem).

linguaphile's avatar

I knew I was doomed the minute I hit “answer.” There’s just something not right about that combination! Haha!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Seems like a reasonable way to pay for the plastic surgery… ooh, now I’m inspired.

chewhorse's avatar

Myself? I would just L♥O♥R♥V♥E to buy a couple of politicians, but DAMN those things are expensive!! (anyway, it’d probably be like buying an over-inflated condom of hot air).

So many shoes that I know I won’t ever wear.
And an iphone. I’ve never really been sucked in by the smartphone craze – I have an incredibly basic samsung flip phone that I can text and call on, but nothing else – but I’ve been fiddling around with a friend’s iphone and some of the apps are so cute…I mean there’s a sonic screwdriver app…

@Lightlyseared @ANef_is_Enuf Facebook album is not hard on the eyes, might even make my fiance jealous if she wasn’t attached already. Don’t buy into the cosmetic surgery BS :-)

Bellatrix's avatar

Thank you everyone for your funny, creative and interesting answers. Loved reading your comments.

@Hypocrisy_Central I figured as much and all I have to go an is a dinky avatar

It’s weird to be talked about like I’m not here. :P
